"So I got my call today saying I got accepted into the PA program here at UT! :) I first just wanted to tell you that I got accepted and then I also wanted to say how thankful I am for all you have done for me. I really can't tell you how much you helped me in undergrad and how much better of a college experience and better off I am in life with having met you. I know an email is not near worthy of a thank you but I thought for the short notice it would be ok for now."
